Never Have I Ever…

Never have I ever ideas

My favourite drinking game when I was a student was ‘Never Have I Ever,’ although we simply referred to it as ‘I Have Never’ instead. The concept is simple, involving a group of people sitting in a circle with alcoholic drinks or shots in front of them. The first player makes a statement starting with ‘never have I ever,’ and the participants who have done what the first player hasn’t take a drink. It often starts quite slowly, with the questions being rather tame, but often after a few rounds it descends into debauchery with rather disgusting statements being thrown around the table and the more promiscuous (or biggest liars) of the group get rather drunk very quickly.

I was in the pub a little while ago, and the table next to me were filled with students who were participating in their own version of the game. Believe me when I say that I learned things about them that I certainly wouldn’t ever wish to know about another human being. However, in my own little random world, I started to think of things that I honestly haven’t ever actually done, and thought it might be fun to play a little blogging ice-breaker game with you, particularly as I have gained a number of new readers recently.

Before my regular readers start freaking out, this is a family friendly blog, so these are all things that can be kept within the PG rating, I promise.

Never Have I Ever:

1. Watched Back to the Future. It may have been Back to the Future Day last week, being the exact date that Marty McFly went to in the film, but that still doesn’t mean that I have any interest in watching it.

2. Been to a rave.

3. Deliberately stolen from a store. I accidentally walked out once without paying for a CD years ago but went back. I could have got away with it too – no alarms had gone off and nobody had noticed.

4. Played Call of Duty

5. Eaten a S’More.

6. Changed a lightbulb.

7. Travelled in a limousine.

8. Ridden in a gondola.

9. Blogged when drunk.

10. Done a bungee jump.

11. Dressed up as a Jedi, gone to my local supermarket and ‘used the force’ to open the automatic doors. (Random and pointless, but I saw this suggestion on Facebook and loved the idea)

12. Been to a festival. I’m a musician who has never been to a festival.

13. Read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime.

14. Snorkelled, surfed or dived. I’m a good swimmer, but avoid going in the sea at all costs – I don’t like the idea of swimming around with things that could bite or sting, and sewage. Bleurgh.

15. Been skydiving.

16. Shot a gun. In fact, I’ve never even seen a real gun up close.

17. Drawn graffiti on a wall.

18. Skinny dipped. (Trust me, nobody needs to see that…)

19. Been fired from a job.

20. Got a tattoo. (I’d like one, but hate needles)

21. Taken Class A drugs.

22. Got a piercing that can’t be seen in the winter.

23. Deliberately eaten an insect.

24. Run from the police.

25. Toilet papered someone’s house. I have, however, toilet papered a person. Long story.

Here’s where you guys get to join in! How drunk would you be from responding to my questions? Have you got any Never Have I Evers to add?

  1. What a fun post. That game sounds a great laugh, especially for students! I have one:
    Never have i ever been through the channel tunnel – despite living in the same town as where the Eurostar leaves from!!!

  2. 10 out of 25 I HAVE done, 11 of you’ll accept toilet papering an office desk, its entire contents and the owner’s car! Great list πŸ™‚

    • Haha – oh dear you’d be very drunk from the sounds of it! It definitely wouldn’t be tequila though, I had a bad experience with that years ago and after having the mother of all hangovers I’ve never touched it again!

  3. Let’s see… I’ve never read or seen Harry Potter, Twlight, 50 shades of Grey or any of Ann Rice’s Vampire stuff. I’ve never seen an episode of Friends, CSI or Sex in the City. TA!

    • Yup, you totally win haha! I’ve read all of those except Twilight (don’t even get me started on how much I hate the films) and I used to be obsessed with all of those programmes! What do you watch then?

  4. Gone “corning” at Halloween. I’m from a very small, rural town. There wasn’t much else to do except for TP’ing and cow tipping. πŸ™‚

      • First, you get corn at a feed store, fill up the tube sock you stole from your dad’s dresser. Next, wait till dark and go with a bunch of friends to run around to other friend’s houses, throwing corn at their windows to scare the heck out of them. Then you run, run, run! We’re a rural bunch. Gotta take the fun where you can find it.

  5. I haven’t played that game in over 20 years and only at a Peace Corps get-together. I have done a few things you haven’t……..changed a lot of light bulbs, read “The Curious Case of the Dog in the Nighttime,
    “ridden in a gondola, and travelled in a limousine. I guess there are a lot of things on our list still to do.

  6. Well, I have purposefully eaten an insect. I have had many S’Mores. And I’ve seen Back to the Future. I’ve changed a lightbulb, and been fired from a job. I’m drunk.

  7. This was so fun to read, and it’s a great opportunity to get to know you better and vise versa.:)

    I have played this game before, so I know how it goes.

    1.) I have see all three Back To The Future films, though it was many eons ago and I only vaguely remember them. My wife and I were discussed them the other day, and I told her we need to re-watched them, back-to-back.

    2.) Me, neither. I’ve never had the desire.

    3.) Regrettably, I have… 😦

    4.) Nope!

    5.) Oh, yeah, I love em to death! I am shocked that you haven’t!

    6.) Yes.

    7.) No.

    8.) No.

    9.) No.

    10.) No.

    11.) No.

    12.) No.

    13.) No.

    14.) I have attempted to dive, but never got the hang of it and didn’t care enough to perfect it.

    15.) No way, are you NUTS!?

    16. I have held a pistol before but never shot one. I have, however, shot a BB gun as a youth.

    17.) No, though I do love the Arts.:)

    18.) Yes.

    19.) Yes.

    20.) Yes, I have a double-strand of blue barbed wire completely around my right bicep. It’s symbolic of my inner strength (not to mention physical, considering the pain involved.)

    21.) Nope, I sure haven’t and I’m proud of that!

    22.) No. I got my ear pierced in the eight grade, but due to an infection, I had to let it close.

    23.) No.

    24.) No.

    25.) No.

  8. This made me giggle a lot! Love this game, so many juicy stories have come from it! Like you, I haven’t done most of the things on your list aside from 1, 6, 7, 12, 20 and in the case of 25 does someone’s car differ? LOL!

  9. Well, I have seen Back to the Future (not as good as the hype, but not bad), I have changed many light bulbs, I used to target practice as a teenager with a rifle, but I haven’t had a gun in many years, and never a handgun (those things are designed to kill people -that’s all). I’m 53 and recently got my first tattoo (semicolon project) and like it so much I’m going to get another next month. The needle isn’t all that bad, and you really don’t see it unless you ask. On the wrist, the pain was minimal, more of a very strong buzzing. I hear some places hurt more. My wife who got one at the same time denies any pain at all. She did point out that since we both used to self-harm, our idea of pain might be different than some…

  10. Only 9 I haven’t done but since Thomas Beecham said the only 2 things you should never try are incest and folk dancing I’m still quite cautious clearly

  11. This is fun!Though I wonder… you’ve really NEVER changed a light bulb? πŸ˜€
    I’m also with you on the festival one. I’m a little ashamed to admit it but hey…

  12. I love this post! You’ve done it again with your creativity and talent! I would be black out drunk because I have never done most of these things either!

  13. Hilarious! I’d be under the table (or at the hospital with alcohol poisoning). That thing about dressing up as a Jedi and using ‘The Force’ to open an automatic door is too funny!
